Hmmmm....Tribune wonders about vetting

Mark Silva of the Chicago Tribune tries to make the case that the John McCain campaign insufficiently vetted Sarah Palin.

But the question is unavoidable, as revelations about the private life of a public figure little-known to the public unfold.

It's a question of vetting, perhaps, which hadn't been fully performed in the case of (Thomas) Eagleton and may still be underway with Palin. Eagleton was tapped as a last-minute selection by McGovern in 1972. Palin was chosen last-minute by Republican McCain, last week.

This is quite rich coming from the Tribune, a paper that wrote millions of words about Barack Obama and didn't know about a key element of his resume until conservative researchers raised the issue.
